gd73-07-31 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City - 2nd set. Jerry's birthday is at midnight. The place Melts Down. So do the Boys! I was there and taped this show myself. Great AUD here, taped by Jerry Moore. Oh yeah, there is NO SBD for this night. Just this AUD. Thanks Jerry Moore.

just listened to 1st 9 tunes in this AUD. Immaculate! I d/l all the SHNs. Already had the SBD. The simplicity of this one makes it that much more stunning and beautiful. Nothing has been touched. No high-end EQ has been added during the transfer and mastering. I checked with my Sennheiser headphones. What makes a great AUD, imho?

a) Outdoors open-air acoustical sound-model environment
b) stellar FOB location
c) Sound Crew nailing an excellent PA system
d) the Boys nailing the setlist in full stride - on a good night
e) good crowd
f) good venue
g) getting lucky as hell
h) tapes lasting for years
i) good transfer
j) good remastering

If I could go back and re-tape my AUDs of GD at RFK Stadium - June 9 / 10, 1973 -- simple what I'd do this time. It would be the same bulls-eye FOB. Same single-point stereo mic. This time I'd have a Taping Partner. He/she could isolate another mic taped on a separate channel -- walk a bit toward where the Drums are slightly louder outta the wall of sound. Then mix the mics carefully.

Nice swarm going on that torrent. I hittin' about 250 kB/s. My new 500 GB hd will be here in a couple of days. I have 30 GB to burn. I'd love to give my best AUD tapes to MOTB perhaps. They could transfer all the tapes into new housings. In the process of repacking the cassette reels, they could repair wrinkles in the tapes (with an iron I believe). Eliminate that part of my tape damage. During playback and transfer, they keep adjusting the heads to track just right. That's what I believe they're doing now. I'm confident they could remaster my June 9/10 box set, 1973 tapes and get a better high-end result than I did. High-end audio spectrum is 1st part to suffer under less-than-optimal conditions. Somebody point MOTB to this idea - perhaps to the Suggestion Box?

thanks, i'm bookmarking all of these. it's hard to search the archive, because you get like 40 pages of shows, in absolutely no kind of order whatsoever. i wish you could browse auds by year, it would save lots of time.

Maybe you've already heard this one, or maybe you're not a fan of 1970-era Dead. But this is truly one of the best AUD shows up on the Archive. My review says it all. Hope you like it !!
cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

Reviewer: dr. flashback - 4 out of 5 stars - November 19, 2005
Subject: Top Ten!!

Well steal my face and call me Bozo, this show just made an AUD tape lover outta me!!
I had seen this show mentioned around for years on the boards, and of course it's high up on the Deadbase survey list for 1970 as well. But hey, who has time for AUD shows when there's so much SBD to grab?? (he said foolishly). After reading the reviews of this new remaster from the Port Chester folks, the old Dr. decided to take the plunge and DL this monster.
So I load up Set One in my WAV player and click on
FOTD. I was stunned! Speechless! The clarity of the vocals and acoustic guitars is amazing. I would have never believed an AUD from 1970 could sound this good. Okay, so maybe not quite up to the Holy Grail of 8/6/71, but close. REAL close. A big hats off and a pass of the pipe to the Port Chester group. But of course it helps to have a great source recording to start with - which this is.
The acoustic set features some fairly rare items - a slower El Paso, a beautiful Rosalie, and an even rarer Operator. The FOTD and Uncle John are stellar, and the Ripple really sweet. Well that's about the whole set isn't it - hell they're ALL good here. The band is in a good mood and it comes through in the singing.
Set Two finds them trying out some different material, since no doubt they played almost everything they knew the previous 4 nights here. Kind of a laid back set if you can dig it, with lots of Garcia doing bluesy jams in the middle section - which is mostly instrumental. The Morning Dew is a real standout though, very strong. And the rare Baby Blue make this a very enjoyable set overall.
Okay, put on your space helmets Cadets, and get ready to obtain orbit, cause the last set is not of this world!!
A great Truckin (still a new song here) kicks it off, and then a seamless segue into Dark Star. First, some nice spacy jamming with Jerry offering all 64 Crayola colors in an ever-changing sound collage that's on the mellow side. Then after the verse - look out!! They go immediately into a long Feedback-like weirdness section, led mostly by Mickey and Bill on percussion FX. At the beginning during the Gong jam, someone in the audience contributes some bird calls - which temporarily breaks the spell and Bobby jokingly admonishes the crowd to "be serious". Priceless!!
Warning - this Dark Star is a bit harsh if you're not into electronic effects. Very similar to the Caution>Feedback jam of the 9/20/70 show. But I like it, call me a freak. You'll find it hard to believe this is the same band that played Little Susie an hour ago!! Finally Phil and Jerry enter the fray, and morph the jam into a fine early Main Ten (read Playin) jam. And the Dancin is just over the top, with Jerry delivering some scorching leads.
The rest of the show is so hot it's beyond description. Suffice to say that Pigpen brings it all down to earth with one of the best Good Lovins of the year. Those lucky few who were at this show really got their money's worth, and probably their lives changed as well!!
This one went right to the top and rang the bell for me. A Top Ten for sure, with the acoustic set, a fine shining example of what the Dead could do in 1970 when the force was with them.
Suggestion - put this AUD show on a good stereo, tweak your EQ a little, esp. the bass. Turn out the lights - no ALL the lights. Turn on your surround sound and light up a bowl of Cheerios. I guarantee that by the 3rd or 4th song - you'll feel like you're IN the audience!! A great experience and a must have show for fans of this period.
cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

Agree on 11-08-1970... probably my favorite acoustic set. The King Kong vs. Godzilla banter is classic!

Here is an AUD that has given me much joy.

Please upload this Long Beach MOTB source here asap.

I had a SBD cassette back in the day. One of my first tapes. A HQ aud of this caliber sounds juicy.
